Academic Statement Review Checklist
Your Academic Statement should...
... describe what you have accomplished at Evergreen with concrete examples and, for the Annual Statement, describe what you anticipate studying next.
... show how you are challenging yourself to meet your own goals as well as Evergreen’s Six Expectations of a Graduate.
... describe an area of emphasis, a central question, or patterns of interest that have emerged in your studies.
... be error-free (grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.).
... be clear to an outsider (employer or graduate school admissions officer) who has no knowledge of Evergreen's pedagogical structure or its programs.
- Avoid acronyms, names of individuals, and language not applicable to Evergreen, i.e., majors, honors.
- Consider the amount of personal information that you want to share and keep your options open for multiple unforeseen opportunities.
